My work comes from the need to highlight the connections that tie us together as a Latinx community. ‘QUE SOMOS’ represents a search for our identity in the modern world, and how our heritage plays a role in our lives. This is the focal point of this exhibition. I want my work to be a conduit that immerses you in a certain time or place in your life. I want you to remember what your Grandmother's kitchen smelled like when you were a kid, or what hair gel you were using before you went out on the weekend. To share these stories, our memories, and cultural nuances, with not just our community, but with the world so we can spark a dialogue and continue our search for identity and cultural diversity .
